Two Apple TV+ shows — "Swagger" and "Pachinko" — have been recognized by the African American Film Critics Association TV Honors.

"Swagger," a sports drama inspired by NBA star Kevin Durant's life, was honored with the Best Ensemble Award. "Pachinko," which follows the story of a Korean immigrant family over multiple generations, earned the Best International Production Award.

The awards mark Apple's second and third from the AAFCA TV Honors. Back in 2020, animated series "Central Park" was recognized in the Best Animated category.

Apple TV+ has been racking up the awards and nominations this season. Earlier in July, the streaming service received 52 Primetime Emmy nominations for its various shows and the Hollywood Critics Association Awards recognized Apple TV+ as the most-nominated streaming service.

"Pachinko" also received an Emmy Award nominated for Outstanding Main Title Design in 2022.

Since its debut, Apple TV+ has earned 1,115 award nominations and 248 award wins, including the 2022 Oscar Best Picture for "CODA."
